Here and Now Living in the Spirit

Synopsis

Here and Now Living in the Spirit by Henri J. M. Nouwen

** Short meditations on various themes, such as living in the present, joy, suffering, prayer and relationship. Classic Henri Nouwen ** Here and Now is a collection of Henri Nouwen's meditations on those things that really mattered to him. It is a personal statement of faith, which serves as a series of glimpses into the Kingdom of God. Each meditation is both complete in itself and part of a larger picture. The individual meditations are woven around larger themes, such as joy, suffering, prayer, compassion, family, and relationships, so that when read together a clear vision of the spiritual life emerges. Like the stones in a mosaic, each meditation has its own unique significance, but looked at together the components reveal something new, significant and often surprising. By sharing his spiritual journey, Henri Nouwen encouraged us to find the words to express our own journey, which has its own unique beauty and boundaries. 'My hope', he said, 'is that my expression of God's love in my life will give you the freedom and the courage to discover - and maybe describe - God's love in yours.'
